LATEST BIO-SLR


BioSLR latest issue

Published by Lawtext Publishing, Oxford, the Bio-Science Law Review's issue 4 for 2004/2005 has just appeared. It's a somewhat slender issue, but carries some interesting content:

* In 2004 the World Health Organization set up its Commission on Intellectual Property Rights, Innovation and Public Health. The ICC Commission on Intellectual Property has made a submission to it. Nigel Jones (Linklaters), who drafted the ICC's submission, introduces and contextualises it for BioSLR readers;

* Raymond R. Mandra and Alicia A. Russo (Fitzpatrick Cella Harper & Scinto, New York) look at the regulatory basis for stem cell research in the United States, reminding us that regulation can kick in at state level as well as federally;

* Craig Khan (Adams & Adams, Pretoria, South Africa) takes a quick look at bioprospecting in the context of the local National Biodiversity Act 2004, part of which came into force at the beginning of this year.
The IPKat always enjoys seeing the BioSLR, though he remains perpetually perplexed as to how it numbers its issues. This one is deemed to be issue four of 2004/2005, though the Kat thinks it could put in a good claim for being issue 1 of 2006 ...
